the valentine v1 is one of, if not thee best radar detector on the market.

and yes if you want to you can cut the wires and run them into the head board and wire it to be directly powered from the sunroof/interior light.

not recommended though, just use the cig this way you can always take it down

I have the V1 too, never have a ticket with the V1 in y car~
and i think you can have it wire some where else, because there is a port for the power supply at the right side of the radar(sorry my english sucks)...
